External Scholars Program

SASA Gallery: External Scholars  
The SASA Gallery has developed a strong network of strategic partnerships with universities and arts organisations across Australia and beyond to build the SASA Gallery: External Scholars Program. The partnerships are forged in order to develop research-led, collaborative real-life experiential learning and teaching opportunities for students across disciplinary areas of critical thinking and writing, curatorial practices, exhibition management, visual art, architecture and design.

The SASA Gallery: External Scholars Program has been generously supported by the Divisional Research Performance Fund.

The following external scholars have contributed scholarly or substantial creative texts, many of which have been included in the collections of art-school and state libraries.
